This week in Maths we have been learning all about patterns. We looked at repeating a pattern in a variety of ways: colour, shapes, numbers. Being able to copy a pattern is important as it allows the children to think about what is the same and what is different. At home, please use some items to create different patterns.
We had lots of fun learning “all about maths” last week. Please ask your child about some of the activities they took part in. Thank you to everyone you completed our “Maths Bingo” homework tasks and to those of you who also tweeted what you were getting up to. I enjoyed looking at all of the posts!
Here are a few photos from our final days of celebrating Maths Week Scotland.
We have been celebrating “all things Maths” this week in school. Hopefully we have been learning lots and building on our Numeracy skills. So far this week we have been on a number hunt in the school, played with different number activities, drew a castle using 2D shape, been on a visit to the Co-op (photos to follow) and lots more.
Our Free Flow afternoons have been outside and, so far, we have been very lucky with the weather. The children have been taking part in different maths activities and learning new skills and mathematical vocabulary. Please ask the children what they have been up to.
This morning we visited Bishopton Co-op as part of our Maths Week and I have to say, it was a great success. The children had a shopping list to complete and did so very well. They should now know where certain items can be found in the shop!
Once they had completed their task, they were able to spend their money – and what a wide range of purchases they made! Lots of fun was had and both Mrs McAvoy and I were delighted in the way the children represented our classes, and Bishopton Primary, on our first trip out of school. Well done everyone!
A huge thank you to our parent/grandparent helpers for coming with us and for getting so involved. It was a great help!
Have a wee nosey at our photos from today’s visit.
